#1 of 2 B&Bs / Inns in Gorleston-on-Sea
The Harbour in Gorleston-on-Sea near Great Yarmouth is just a short level walk from the beautiful Gorleston beach. Our bar looks out over boats coming in and out of the harbour and rooms to the front have a waterfront harbour view. Superbly situated for the Broads, Norfolk and Suffolk coastline, with all the attractions of Great Yarmouth nearby, Gorleston-on-Sea is an unspoilt hidden gem, ideal for families, couples, and those wanting a beautiful beach on your doorstep, plenty to do nearby but just that bit quieter and more relaxed. The Harbour has the added interest of boats chugging past the window.Under new management, we have ten rooms consisting of doubles and family rooms, all with tea/coffee making facilities with a large family bar area.

Had a wonderful stay at The Harbour this weekend. The hotel itself is small and cosy, we stayed in an updated room facing the rear of the property. Facilities were good, shower room small but perfectly functional. Shower was good with plenty of hot water. Room had tea/coffee making facilities, hairdryer and plenty of towels, beds were clean and comfy. The breakfast was great, a small menu but plenty to choose from. Poached eggs some of the best I've ever had! Also a small selection of cereals to help yourself to, orange juice and choice of tea or coffee. The location is great, right on Gorleston's harbour and just 5 minutes slow walk to the lovely beach and attractions. The hotel itself is not super-modern, but I personally preferred it this way as it felt much more relaxed. I found myself able to use the lovely little guest lounge with my toddler without worrying too much about scuffing the decor! What really sets this place apart are the hosts, Aura and Vince were so friendly. We had a lovely cup of tea to welcome us and a chat, but without being over the top. Our little one was poorly during the trip and Aura gave us Calpol and a thermometer. She also gave him some little toys to take home and play with. I really can't get over how helpful she was, I don't think I've ever experienced anything like it in my many years of travel. I can't say enough good things about the hosts, I really can't. I have absolutely nothing negative to say about this hotel. I guess if you want an ultra-modern, brand new place then this will not be your cup of tea, but if you want a place to stay with good facilities, a great breakfast and fantastic hosts who really go above and beyond for you, then definitely come here!!!!! :-)

We recently stayed here for a couple of nights. The room was comfortable, slightly dated but spotlessly clean. My only grumble is the towels, they were good for exfoliating but not if you’re looking for the soft touch. We went and brought our own. The breakfast was good and just the right amount. The lady there was very kind and helpful and nothing was too much trouble for her.

As always The Harbour made our stay! A sea view room with lots of space, a welcoming cuppa and friendly chat on arrival after a long trip. Bags taken to our room while we relaxed in the lounge. A great nights sleep and delicious fresh cooked breakfast with second to none service. The only place to stay in Gorleston.

Thank you for your lovely review and thank you for choosing to stay here ! We do have a planned refurbishment this winter that will include the room you stayed in, so it may lose a little of the old fashioned feel. It is always a pleasure for us when we have such nice guests and it's been a really great year for us in that respect. We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay here and thank you once again for sharing that with your great review. All our best, Aura & Vince, the Harbour, Gorleston.

Stayed here with my husband and daughter and had a wonderful stay. Our ensuite room was very clean and nicely decorated. The hosts are brilliant and go out of their way to accommodate you. I was ill one morning and Aura came to check that I was ok and see if u needed anything. We will definitely stay there again.
